That's racist. All neighborhoods and businesses should be respected equally. A neighborhood of immigrants and African-Americans should be treated no better or worse than any other neighborhood.

If she was white, she'd get accused of a racist rant and, likely, be beaten up.

But before these idiots can vote I hope they do a little research. Otherwise there will be more leaders like idiot AOC. Go home, and better not vote. These rioters should not be allowed to vote, as they clearly hate the country and its people.

She is brave, and I salute her service to this nation. And she's right about registering to vote, that's how the Irish in the late 1800s turned their situation around. Use your voice in the voting booths to get people in office who will actually help you

These so called protesters obviously think that black lives do not matter as they destroy the communities of the hard pressed black and mixed race communities.

When she is encouraging people to vote, I wonder who for. For the people who want to use force to stop these rioters, or for the people who enable and make excuses for them?

This woman is what America needs. No big words or slang, no political correctness or you owe me. Straightforward and intelligent with enough profanity to emphasize her frustration and anger all while still being respectful. And thank you for your service in the military and then in your own community.

Its not enough to be registered to vote its who you vote for that makes the difference. If you vote for the wrong party, regardless of your intentions, you're only making yourself part of the problem. Make informed choices, not choices based on "go with the flow". The correct choice isn't based on color or sexual orientation. You can start with learning the difference between the 2 parties, who are the candidates, what have they done in the past. Talk before election time is cheap. Consider what's important to you, your family, your values. It might really surprise you to find out who was behind the KKK and why, who voted in Jim Crow laws. Who opposed minority federal loans making it very difficult for minorities to start businesses. Research under what presidential administration were more blacks killed by police then all others combined. Hear out what others like you have to say and why they're not voting for your party. Do the research who are the leaders behind BLM. The truth makes a difference.
